    Same here. I used the Nature's Touch with no prewashing and was pleased with the results. I actually prefer it to a Warm and a Natural.

    I'm interested to know if Joann's will allow a return that was cut. My nearest location will not accept a return that has been cut.
    I've used the packaged Pellon (not sure of exact name) and really loved it. In fact I look for it now but the shelf space for it is almost always empty.

    I use this batting all the time off the roll. I love the crinkle in my finished quilts and I never pre-wash. I have never had a problem with it and I like that it's not a blend.

    I believe the steps to pre-wash would hold true for most 100% cotton batting unless it's been done by the manufacturer as a selling point. The packaged batting tends to be a cotton blend so there is probably less shrinkage and therefore less need to pre-wash.

    I have been using Hobbs 80/20 for several years with good success. I never pre-wash it. Who wants to do that?!!! In the past few years, I've ordered batting from my LA quilter who also is a friend from my church. She orders for several quilters so gets a big discount; it saves $ with shipping. Previous yrs. I ordered just a half roll (15 yds.), but since she was going to be ordering only once a year, I decided to purchase an entire roll of 30 yds. I still haven't "cracked it open". It looks almost like a small hot water heater standing in my fam. rm. LOL! I have never used pellon. After hearing this tale of woe, I think it's not a product I'd be interested in.
    I used Quilters Dream Blend 70/30 for the Prairie Flower quilt. I bought the yardage from the Bernina Shop where they sell batting from a big roll. QDB handles very nicely, but I'm not willing to pay twice the price for it.

    I use Pellon 80/20 all the time, and buy it on 20 yd rolls, and I have NEVER pre-washed it, or any batting. I must say I have never looked at the instructions on the roll though. It wouldn't matter anyway. Like Karen said, I am not about to pre-wash batting. The crinkly look in the quilts is what adds the beauty to them IMO.

    I use Pellon Nature's Touch batting and have never pre-shrunk it. It works fine.
